This painting depicts preminghana which is located on the far NW coast of Tasmania. It is significant to the Tasmanian aboriginals as it contains petroglyphs dating back thousands of years, quarries where tools were sourced, artefact scatters, middens (I’ve depicted abalone shells) and endangered plants. The scrub is thick and the water has lots of tannins, hence the copper/amber colours in the water
MATERIALS: Stretched canvas, acrylic paint, sealed with a matt spray artwork sealer.
HANDMADE: Aboriginal artwork is very special. Every artwork tells a story with symbols, dots and line work. I feel a true connection to every piece I paint and a lot of heart and soul go into each painting.
CARE: All artwork is sealed with a matt spray artwork sealer. Be careful not to drop the artwork or sit things on top of it if laying on a table etc. If soiling occurs, very carefully wipe clean with a damp cloth. As the artwork is textured, regular dusting will keep it in its best condition.
